I bought new wheels and tyres off eBay for a couple of 90s F1 cars and an Alfa 155 touring car (these are a slightly grooved type). They appear to have very very little grip...sliding everywhere!
Is there a wearing in phase these need to go through before they get grippy?

Thanks,
Jack

If they`re old shop stock from the 90s they might just have gone off over the years.
RS Slotracing make the best replacement tyres(Ortmanns).
Cheers

I had a quick look at the tyres tonight and can see that only the centres have worn so far - (literally only a few laps have ben done on them) - bit like an over inflated tyre on a real car. I guess they need more use or truing up a bit...
